[1*] Vickers of Prince William, also Wrights (Msg #28) [Matt Sutko]

February 25, 2000 at 11:08:32

I am researching the Vickers of Prince William County. Vickers are known to have lived wthin the bounds of present PW as early as 1723 (when Elias Vickers died testate) until @1785-87, when John Wright [Right] Vickers, William Vickers, and Elias Vickers emigrated. John Wright Vickers moved first to South Carolina, then Lincoln County, Tennessee, where he died @1843. William and Elias first moved to Shenandoah County, Virginia then to Rockingham County, Virginia. William lived in Rockingham beyond 1820. Elias moved to Montgomery County, Virginia in 1806.

John Wright Vickers and William Vickers served under Captain Thomas Ewell of PW in the First Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War. So may have a Thomas Vickers.

The Vickers are closely associated with the family of Richard Wright of Prince William ((d) 1767).

John Wright Vickers lived with Benjamin Beavers of P.W. in the early 1780s and also was closely associated with John Johnstone of the County.

[2*] In Reply to: VICKERS & GILREATHs fl 1759 Pr Wm VA (Msg 91) Winnie Gilreath Westbury [Matt Sutko] November 26, 2000 at 08:23:28

I descend from an Elias Vickers, who died in Montgomery County, Virginia in 1822. Most, although not all, Vickers who hail from West Virginia descend from Elias.

Available documentation indicates this Elias Vickers almost certainly was born in Prince William County prior to 1765 (he's listed in the 1810 census of Montgomery County, Va. census as being more than 45 years old).

He shows up on a Prince William deed @1780 living next to the "land of John Vickers." A few years later, a John Wright Vickers sells the adjoining land. The deed says John Wright Vickers is one of the two elder sons of a John Vickers and that these two elder sons inherited their land from Richard Wright. Richard Wright died in Prince William in 1767. The index for his will exists but the will - like many Prince William documents - has been destroyed.

Significantly, this John Wright Vickers signed the deed "John Right Vickers," i.e., the deed says his middle name is "Wright" but he spelled Wright with an "R" rather than a W. Based on these documents we know several things. First, the land John Wright Vickers sold was adjacent to the land that Elias Vickers was living on and together those two parcels, plus some acreage later sold by a William Vickers, roughly equals the amount of land that Richard Wright bequeathed to John Vickers' two elder sons. From this, I'm pretty confident that Elias Vickers and John Wright Vickers are the elder sons of a John Vickers of Prince William. The third brother seems to have been William, who held a little of the land bequeathed by Richard Wright. As I discuss below, William has documented ties to both this Elias and this John Wright Vickers. I live near Prince William County here in Virginia and I have been able to locate pretty precisely where this land was.

My Elias Vickers moved about 50 miles west from Prince William to Shenandoah County between 1780-1785. In 1785 (or '86 - I don't have my notes before me) he married Margaret Cunningham daughter of Thomas Cunningham. Thomas died shortly thereafter and Elias and Margaret (also called Peggy) are listed on several deeds which sold land that had been owned by Margaret's father, Thomas. They are signatories because Margaret was an heir of Thomas. The deeds make clear that Elias and Margaret were living in Rockingham.

Around 1787 Elias and Peggy Vickers moved one county south, to the Briery Branch section of Rockingham County. He shows up on personal property tax lists, buys and sells property, and was active in the Harrisonburg Methodist Church - whose records establish that Elias' house was a sort of satellite church for that part of the County. Peggy Cunningham died around 1792 and Elias married Phoebe Loid [Lloyd? Lord?] in Rockingham. In 1806 Elias sold his land in Rockingham and moved to Montgomery County, Virginia. He settled on Crab Creek having purchased land there. I have the deed. Indeed, the area where he lived ultimately took the name Vicker, Virginia also called Vickers Switch, Virginia. It retains that name today.

Elias died testate in 1822. His will names his children, including my ancestor, John Vickers. John and two of his brothers moved to what was then Kanawha County, Virginia.

WHO WERE THIS ELIAS' BROTHERS? We know that a William Vickers "of Shenandoah" County sold land in Prince William in 1787. This land abutted the land owned by John Wright Vickers and the land Elias Vickers was living on in 1780. William Vickers shows up living near to Elias in Rockingham County, also in the Briery Branch area of Rockingham County @1790.

We know from census data and Revolutionary War Pension data that a John Vickers served from Prince William in the First Virginia Infantry for 6 years. Significantly, William Vickers also served in the same company of that unit, both under the command of Captain Bertram Ewell, a prominent Prince William citizen. John Vickers served as a drummer. Thus William has closely documented ties to my Elias and to John Wright Vickers.

We know from his pension application that John Vickers moved from Prince William to Greenville County, South Carolina around 1793. I have reviewed numerous records from Greenville at the DAR Library and the National Genealogical Library here in D.C. They establish that John was there. His pension moved a short distance from northwestern South Carolina to eastern Tennessee. He shows up in his many documents in Tennessee starting sometime around 1815 - give or take (I don't have the records before me as I write) records establish he married Nancy Mullican [sic] in Greenville in 1794. Sometime after 1810, John Vickers. His pension confirms this move from S.C. to Tenn. He continued to live in Tennessee until death in 1843. The 1840 U.S. census for Tennessee lists this John Vickers as "John R. Vickers," i.e.., I think John [W]Right Vickers, to distinguish him from his son, who's identified as John Vickers.

The destruction of Prince William documents makes it a challenge to prove who Elias, William and John Wright's grandfather was (we know the father was John). An Elias Vickers died in Stafford (from which Prince William was formed) in 1723 holding 100 acres. A 100 acre parcel was held by "Vickers orphans" from at least 1738 (there are no earlier records) until it passed to John Vickers around 1754. This is good evidence that Elias ((d) 1723 was the grandfather or great-grandfather of Elias, William, and John). It may be that he had at least two sons, John and Elisha.

I have not encounterd the Gilbreaths. Are they a Prince William family? Do you know how they interrelate with the Vickers?

I noticed your message on the Vickers. I have heard some of the Vickers line I am working on are in North Carolina. I'm not sure yet. But I have a John Vickers born in Jamestown Va (think it is Prince William co) in 1743 and moved to Tennessee and died there in 1843. He married someone named Nancy. We learned later he had brothers and it was thought to be a William, and Elias (but maybe it was Elijah, since I have a lot fo them in the Vickers line in Tennessee). Then I was under the understanding the their father was John Vickers born before 1723 who had a brother Elisha also born before 1723 and their father could have been Elias who dies in 1723. Does any of this fit in with what you have? I am courious to see how it all comes out.

Don't know whether this helps much, but there was a Benjamin Beavers who served in the First Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War. My 7th great uncle was John Wright Vickers of Prince William. After the Revolutionary War he moved to South Carolina. Around 1815, he moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee. In the Revolutionary War Pension files of John Vickers and his Wife Nancy Vickers is a statement that John Vickers lived with Benjamin Beavers in Prince William after the Revolutionary War. Also, the Reno[e]'s lived in the same part of Prince William. I know this isn't much, but at least it's a name.

ELIJAH VICKERS & KAZIAH FOREST were married 7 November 1861 in McNairy County TN. A daughter, Rebecca Vickers was b. @1865. Kaziah evidently died when Rebecca was about 5 years old and Elijah left her with a McNairy family and went back to Lincoln County TN where he was from. He reportedly was never heard from again.

Last, I am looking for the parents of John Vickers, b. 1743 in Jamestown Va d. 1843 in Tennessee and was married to Nancy also. They married on June 10, 1792.

I could sure all the help someone can give me.

Kelly, Having just viewed your GREAT Vickers web page, I believe somewhere there is a connection to my line. So here is what I have so far, briefly. I appreciate any help or direction you can provide.

Going back in time, I have:

other children are listed along with a J.K. Polk, age 6

1830 Lincoln Co. Tenn. also have listed:

Ezekial Vicars, age 20-30

1 female age 20-30

1 male under 5

1 male 5-10

1840 Lincoln Co. Tenn.:

Eligiah Vicars, age 20-30, family shown

Jeremiah Vicars, age 30-40, family shown

I believe my line comes from Washington Co. but I have no more research to follow up on. Can either of you help? Many thanks in advance for any clues you can provide.

****************************

Hi, Kathy!

While I haven't had a chance to check my notes on Washington Co., GA, I just wanted to check with you to see if you had looked at the Virginia file on the Resource Page entitled "John & Nancy Vickers, VA to Lincoln Co., TN". In 1830, Lincoln Co., TN, John lists his children living at home as John, b. 1813

Elijah, b. 1816

Julia, b. 1817

Eliza, b. 1819

and Yehodan, b. 1820.

John and Nancy were married in 1792, so surely there were older children already grown and married by 1830. If you have a good case for Ezekiel and Jeremiah and Elijah being brothers in Lincoln Co., TN, then there is a good chance Ezekiel is an older son of John and Nancy--weren't many Vickers around Lincoln Co., TN in those early years. Can't comment on the Washington Co., connection just yet. Hope this helps, Kelly

Kelly, I will go back and look again at the John & Nancy in Lincoln Co. My limited info. shows a John Vickers in 1790 Georgia, Burke Co. Juror and again in Washington Co. Georgia Bounty Land Grants 1789-93 John is listed along with Robert, Benjamin & Thomas. My Ezekial in 1850 gives his age as 50, could have been a little older, but was probably born by 1800 and he says Georgia. The 1830 census shows him as age 20-30 in Lincoln Co. Tenn. The case for possible brothers Eligiah & Jeramiah in 1840 Lincoln Co. comes that both Ezekial and Eligiah are listed as living very near, pg.#100 with Jeremiah shown pg. #102. In 1850 Tennessee, Lincoln Co. Ezekial & Elijiah are both living nearby, both have Polk (Paulk?) children in their household. Ezekial also has a dau. Nancy, son Elijiah. These names "fit" with the family naming pattern. I'll let you know if I find any more. Thanks again, Kathy

******************************

Kelly, Thanks for bring my attention to John & Nancy Vickers, Virginia to Lincoln Co. Tenn. I have reviewed the article and they just may be the parents of Ezekial. However, Ezekial says he was born in Georgia, by 1800 the only John Vicars in Georgia are in Burke Co. and Washington Co. 1790. The Washington Co. must be mine? I'll keep checking. Kathy

I was excited to see your e-mail. I've done a lot of research on the Vickers of Prince William County, Virginia. Vickers lived in Prince William prior to its formation as a county in 1731. My mother's maiden name was Vickers and my Vickers line seems to link to Prince William from nearby Shenandoah County, where my fifth great grandfather, Elias Vickers married Margaret Cunningham in 1785. You are the first person who has indicated that any Vickers lived in Prince William after @1787. The Prince William Vickers were closely allied with the Wright family of Prince William. At least three Vickers, Elias, John Wright and William Vickers lived in Prince William immediately after the Revolution. I was wondering how you knew your John Vickers was born in Prince William. Please contact me as I would love to hear your ancestor's story and I have a lot of information I would be glad to share.

John Vickers b. 1743 in Jamestown Va and died March 7, 1843 in Lincoln Co. TN.
Married Nancy (Mullican?) on June 10, 1792. They had 7 kids, Ezekial, Jeremiah, John, Elijah, Julia, Eliza, and Zebulon (or the name is Yehodan, not sure).

Other info I have on John is he came to TN on bounty land. He was in the service between 1777 and 1780 as a private in company commanded by Captain Ewell of the Rgeiment commanded by a Colonet Gibson in the Virginia Line during the Revolutinary War. He also applied for a pension on July 27, 1830 and Nancy applied for half of his pension Jan. 6, 1845 (after his death). I think Nancy died in 1849.

[41*] Notes on William Mullican http://www.geocities.com/mad4mullicans

D. Mitchell Jones (dmj@dmitchelljones.org) 16 Feb 2001

William we can surmise was a farmer as he was a land owner in Bedford Co., VA, Greenville Dist, SC, and in Kentucky. The land of his father-in-law was on Buffalo Creek in Bedford County, and the land he sold in was on Orrix Creek in Bedford County. Buffalo Creek and Orrix Creek are close together, and on Eastside of Bedford County near the Campbell County border.

He appears on the Bedford County Tax lists from 1782 to 1786. In 1782 he was taxed on two horses, and in 1783-1786 he was taxed on 3 horses and 8 to 9 male cattle. He must have moved from Bedford County in 1786 or 1787 to Greenville District, South Carolina.

He is listed on the 1790 and 1800 of Greenville District, South Carolina with neighbors James Webb, Jesse Webb, Joel Webb, and John Vickers.

Can you help us out here with some more evidence of a William/Nancy Ann Allen marriage? I'd love to believe this, since John has been impossible to trace, except that I held the card with his obituary in my own hand in the McMinnville library a couple of years ago, and took notes on it. At that time I did not know he was an ancestor -- just probably some sort of relation -- or I would have photocopied it. The obituary gave his wife as Nancy Ann Allen and also gave all the counties and states in which he lived. I have found some other records to support that his children were born in those counties.

Additionally, Polly Elmore who was a descendant of Solomon Mullican (the son of Nancy Ann Allen) reported his name as being John.

I've seen Keith Dull's work and give it full respect, but still I can't quite get past those two pieces of evidence. So if you have some more info, that would be super!

Hi, and welcome to the Forum! Many of the messages here deal with your (our) line who were descended from John (whom we now think was actually a William) Mullican and Nancy Ann Allen. If you do a search of this Forum on Nancy, you should pull up many of the messages. Also, a search on William or on John may pull up some references. Solomon Mullican, my 3rd great-grandfather, was a brother of William who married Wilmoth Bruce. There was apparently much contact between the Warren Co TN and the Casey Co KY lines for many decades, as well as between both lines and the MS Mullicans.

William Mullican who m Nancy Ann Allen lived at least some time in Bedford/Augusta/Franklin Co area of VA. They also may have lived around Guilford or Rutherford Co NC, and definitely lived in Greenville SC and Old Pendleton District SC before moving to KY (some of their children stayed in Greenville, some went to TN, some went to KY).

You and I are apparently fourth cousins, and you are probably rather more closely related to D. Mitchell Jones and to Robert (Sonny) Turner than to me -- they also post here.
It's always nice to find a new cousin!

Mr. Jones

I am annotating research in the Vickers lines and viewed both your website (thank you) and some of the August 1999 discussion between yourself and DJ Melton as to whether William or John Mullican was the "true" husband of Nancy Ann "Anny" Allen. I could not open some of the messages for some reason so am wondering if the two of you concluded the discussion with any concrete result. My main interest of course is verifying basically that John Vicker's wife Nancy was indeed a "Mullican" and of secondary interest, who her parents were. If you have the time, I thank you in advance for the assistance. Should you be interested in the John Vickers connection, although I do not have all "data" solidly documented, I would be glad to share what I have so far if it would be useful to you.

This AOL address is good to 27 February and I will be able to respond right away. I am on the road and return home on the 28th. My home email "easleyfam@blazenet.com" is good at all times should your response be delayed.

Regards,

Vern Easley

From DMJones68

It was really good to hear from you.

I can say with certainty that Nancy Vickers was the sister of William Mullican Jr as it is documented in her Revolutionary War pension application.

I feel very postive in my own mind that William Mullican Sr is father of William Jr and Nancy, and that Nancy Allen was their mother. I have never found a John Mullican except the brother of William Jr with the Mullicans.

DJ never came out and said that she agreed with me, but her posts in last year indicates to me that she has. She said she had found an obit in Warren Co., TN on John Mullican and a deed in Casey County KY on him. Frankly neither one exists. There are no obits before 1850 for Warren County and I have went thru the Casey County deeds page by page. Another researcher, Keith Dull, also came to same opinion as I did. I did not know about him until late 1999.

Have you seen my web site at: http://www.dmitchelljones.org Then Go to MY MOTHER'S and click on lineage.

Yes I would like to know more about the Vickers. I made an effort last year but did not get very far. At one time Nancy was in White County, TN.

Debra,

I noted other request for information on William and Rebecca on one other genforum.If you would like I could forward it to you. I also found William and Rebecca in the Lincoln Co. Tenn census of 1850. His mother is listed as Mary but no head of the household listed. I have been in touch with a person by the name of Sandy who is also searching William Rufus. I noted on family search that William and Rebecca were married in Lincoln Co. Tenn. on 12-24-1850.If I can be of any further help email me at cdhtarp@hotmail.com
